Greyhound Re-homing Grant Scheme LaunchedGreyhound Racing NSW (GRNSW) has launched the Greyhound Re-homing Grant Scheme to support the tremendous work independent re-homing organisations do to find new homes for retired greyhounds.
Under the scheme, eligible organisations have the opportunity to apply for up to $10 000 towards the cost of an item or service that directly benefits their re-homing activities. Grants will be assessed and awarded tri-annually at the end of February, June and October.
Examples of items which are potentially eligible for a grant contribution under the scheme include dog trailers, a veterinary account as well as kennel renovations and/or extensions.
The introduction of the Greyhound Re-homing Grant Scheme is in addition to the GRNSW Re-homing Contribution Scheme, which was introduced in 2015.
Under that scheme, GRNSW contributes $350 to the veterinary costs of every re-homed greyhound that acquires Greenhounds status at any point in its life. For more on the Re-homing Contribution Scheme, click here.

- 20 February (extended to 1 March 2016);
